It's more 'balanced' now.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Olec, I'm similar in size to you.

It appears that a simple tightening up of the steering head bearing helped a fair bit. I'm still going the Superplush 90 route, as I can get it easily via KTMTwins. I believe that static sag must be in the correct range as well.
